Southampton is recognised as the commercial, cultural and retail capital of the south coast. Its diverse and thriving economy, mild climate, wealth of countryside and proximity to the sea makes the city one of the best places in the UK to live and work.
With over 7,400 businesses – including household names such as Cunard, P&O, Ordnance Survey, Garmin and B&Q – Southampton makes a major contribution to the British economy. It is also a city of innovation, designated as a UK Genomic Medicine Centre, leading the world in finding medical solutions to major diseases and ranking in the world’s top 4 of oceanographic research institutions.
Southampton’s relationship with the sea is long and prosperous. The cruise capital of Northern Europe, the Port of Southampton is also Europe’s most productive port, the UK’s second largest container terminal in the UK and the leading port for automotive trade. Lloyd’s Register relocated to the city because of its maritime links and to foster collaboration with the University of Southampton.
The city’s success to date is matched only by its future ambitions, clear vision and ability to deliver: incoming investment of £3 billion is destined to create 24,000 more jobs and bring 5,000 new homes by 2030.
